This archival package contains time series profile (discrete bottle) data that were collected at the GenGOOS buoy off the coast of Mississippi. The CenGOOS 3-m discus buoy serves as a platform for a NOAA/PMEL MAPCO2 system. Cruises are conducted on an approximately quarterly basis to take water samples for analyses to validate the MAPCO2 measurements. Water samples for DIC and Total Alkalinity and pH are sent to Wei-Jun Cai's lab at the University of Delaware for analyses.
